Default Unknown Ignitor

A while back I picked up a box of engine parts, and this marine engine ignitor was in the lot. I`m trying to figure out which engine it belongs to, and I haven`t had any luck. It`s a little different in that the mounting holes are vertical to each other, and the cam that drove it had the trip on the lobe, there is no way to trip it on the ignitor. I hope someone can help me!

Rusty: I quickly checked the following site, and didn't see anything similar . Could be I just missed it . Maybe Atlantic .

Thanks Paul, I wasn`t aware of that site, it`s amazing! Unfortunately they don`t have any marine engines listed.

Again, thanks Paul! I had googled Mianus but didn`t see anything like this! I guess this is a keeper, I like CT made engines, so I might need this someday.

Rusty: I would clean it up, spray GIBBS on it, put a TAG on it, and save it just in case you or someone needs it . Nice save . I'm just keeping busy, having "FUN", even in NJ on the way through .
